I wonder how much the doctor’s bill is from all the epileptic seizures caused by looking at Shinya Aoki’s pants. It’s like the dude sent his pants to the Carebear’s Art and Science Institute, got them back and rinsed them in a rainbow. If Crayola and Spandex got drunk one night and hooked up, it’s offspring would be Shinya Aoki’s pants. Not only do Shinya Aoki’s pants look amazing (even if you’re colorblind), but his pants have been accused of…cheating.
That’s right, just like Venom got his superpowers from the symbiotic alien suit he wears, now the MMA world is accusing Shinya Aoki of gaining an extra advantage by rocking the most colorful spandex earth has ever seen. But Shinya Aoki defends his pants like any proud mother would defend the honor of their first born. In an interview with MMAFanhouse, Aoki said: “It is nothing to do with my grappling skills,” Aoki replied. “Anybody who has experience of grappling should know about this. This questions seems for non professional.” We thought he was talking about the fact that his opponent may spaz out from an epileptic seizure and not with the extra tractation his pants provide him. I’m not sure if those pants do provide him an advantage for the sole fact that I’ve never worn neon colored pants and attempted an arm-bar on someone (actually I’ve never attempted an arm-bar on anyone…yet). Regardless, as long as Aoki enters the ring with this music and rocks his elaborate collection of spandex we will continue to watch him in awe as he makes the color spectrum proud. [Source]
